Premier League leaders can become only the fifth team to go 30 matches without defeat

Premier League leaders Liverpool can join an elite group of teams if they extend their unbeaten run in the top flight at Crystal Palace next weekend.

Liverpool are 29 league matches without defeat, a run going back to 3 January 2019, when they were beaten by Manchester City.

And should they leave Selhurst Park with at least a point, their 30-match run would make them one of only five teams to go unbeaten for so long in the Premier League.

We look at the four sides who have gone 30 matches or more without defeat.

Man City 
30 matches (8 Apr 2017-2 Jan 2018)

Starting with a 3-1 home win against Hull City, Man City's 82 points from 30 matches steered them to the 2017/18 title.

Pep Guardiola's side struck 87 goals in the run, helped by comprehensive victories over Stoke City, Watford and Liverpool, before they were finally beaten 4-3 by the Reds at Anfield.

30 matches (23 Dec 2001-6 Oct 2002)

A 10-man win at Liverpool just before Christmas started a run that led to the 2001/02 title, sealed with Sylvain Wiltord claiming victory at Manchester United.

Arsenal won 25 matches and drew five before a 16-year-old Wayne Rooney struck late for Everton to hand them defeat.

40 matches (23 Oct 2004-29 Oct 2005)

Jose Mourinho's side claimed the second-longest unbeaten run as they secured back-to-back titles with a defence that conceded only 19 times in just over a year.

Frank Lampard was the leading scorer during the run, with 22 goals, before it ended when Darren Fletcher sealed victory for Man Utd.

49 matches (7 May 2003-16 Oct 2004)

Who would have thought that when Arsenal left Highbury after a 6-1 victory over Southampton it would be the start of a run that put them in the history books?

The unbeaten streak extended across the whole of the 2003/04 title-winning season, giving the team the "Invincibles" tag, with Thierry Henry claiming 39 goals.

Arsene Wenger's team were denied a half-century by Man Utd at Old Trafford, with Rooney their scourge again.
